Jeremy Finlayson Biography

Thursday, 5 September 2019
Jeremy Finlayson explains why he stepped away from footy after the Giants' round nine win over North Melbourne in 2018, spending some time in his hometown of Culcairn, a country town in the Riverina region of NSW.

"I was fatigued and mentally worn down, and I didn't know how hard AFL footy was," he said.

"During the week I used to think about footy, footy, footy, which is why I was fried by round nine and I ended up heading home for a break."

Finlayson played five more games in 2018 but never recaptured his best and failed to play in any of the club's finals. In 2019, however, he's been a revelation, kicking 37 goals from 19 games playing as a forward.

The athletic goalkicker credited his work with GWS sports psychologist Darren Everett as a major reason behind his form this year.

"I probably see Darren twice a week and he's been huge in helping me deal with the pressures of being a full-time footballer," he said.

"Without Darren I'd probably be struggling like I was this time last year. We've seen some of the best players in the comp taking some time off this year so it can affect anyone.

"Everyone thinks its a free ride playing in the AFL but it's pretty challenging sometimes."

Jeremy Finlayson is on the radar of North Melbourne as the Roos look to add another elite ball-user to their backline.

Finlayson is contracted at Greater Western Sydney until the end of 2020 but the Giants have encouraged him to canvass trade options at other clubs as they work to avoid a salary cap squeeze in 2019.

Friday, 21 September 2018
Jeremy Finlayson will explore trade options at rival clubs as Greater Western Sydney moves to avoid a salary cap squeeze in 2019.

After a highly promising start to 2018, Finlayson, 22, signed a new two-year deal three months ago that bound him to the Giants until the end of 2020.

However, Finlayson's manager, Dave Trotter of Hemisphere Management Group, said his client would now canvass options at other clubs after discussions with GWS.

"Jeremy was told in his exit interview that the club was open to exploring options ahead of the trade period," Trotter said.

"This was unexpected but we will have a look around and if there is something there we will explore it, but if not Jeremy has got two years remaining on his contract and both he and the club are more than happy for him to stay."

Saturday, 1 July 2017
Jeremy Finlayson believes he can have an impact on his team's fortunes this year after admitting he wasted the first two years of his AFL career.

"My first two years I didnt have the belief that I could play at AFL level, I just wasn't up to the standard," he said.

"I was getting frustrated because people back home would ask me why I wasn't playing, but I knew I had to do the work and my time would come.

"It took a couple of years for me to build myself up, but I believe in myself a lot more now.

"It really helped me when the players kept telling me I could make it and it gave me the desire to go after it, so it's been two years I kind of wasted, but it's been my dream to play in the AFL and it's finally come true."

Tuesday, 14 March 2017
Jeremy Finlayson signs a one-year contract extension to remain at GWS until the end of 2018.

I came up here as a young boy and this is my third year now and I really love the club, Finlayson said.

My first two pre-season were pretty interrupted with injury but now Ive had a pretty solid pre-season and getting that opportunity has given me more belief.

I cant wait to see what the future holds here.

Tuesday, 8 March 2016
Jeremy Finlayson will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a knee injury.

The 20-year-old damaged ligaments in his right knee in a reserves practice match at Tom Wills oval, just over a week after he made his senior debut in the Giants' NAB Challenge match against the Western Bulldogs.

Friday, 28 November 2014
GWS select Jeremy Finlayson from the GWS Academy with pick No.85 at the 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

"He's a bit of a developing tall who is known as a forward but will play back at times," Giants list manager Stephen Silvagni said.

"Will probably take a little while but he's a nice kick."
